Marc "Spud" Bartley is well known in the powerlifting world for his years of heavy lifting. While training with super weights for his passion of powerlifting, Spud realized that most lifting straps out there were flimsy and not made for real lifting. So, inspired, he set out to create a line of gym straps and equipment that would keep going as long as you did. Their products are made form super strong nylon webbing and are all made locally in their hometown in good ol' South Carolina. Check them out and see for yourself just how strong their products really are.
